Bruce Wagner (@brucewagner) urges his 12,000 Twitter followers to switch to #Lightworks. Thanks for the vote of confidence!

“The King’s Speech” is just one of the thousands of Hollywood films which were edited entirely in LightWorks which is now 100% FOSS. cont p1

LightWorks will be THE dominant video editor in the world since it’s now FOSS & has won more awards than ANY other video editor in the world

1:36 PM Apr 19th

If you do video editing, I HIGHLY recommend following all 5 links in this post: LightWorks!

1:38 PM Apr 19th

LightWorks is the world’s best video editor software, and it’s FOSS (free open source software). … p1 continued…

2:30 PM Apr 19th

We decided that we are standardizing on it. We will only use LightWorks in house. …p2 continued…

2:32 PM Apr 19th

We are using the windows version now. When it becomes available, we will use the Ubuntu Linux version of LightWorks. p3

2:33 PM Apr 19th

Some of this, it has to be said, is a slight exaggeration, or in the very least is premature & wildly optimistic.

But all the same, we appreciate the ringing vote of confidence.

Thank you, Bruce!

Throughout the conference, Josh talked with everyone from 3D specialists, to expert audio guys, the makers of the fastest SD cards in the world, tech gurus, video giants, and more. The resulting NAB Padumentary Series is a perfect example of the innovative, entrepreneurial and integrated spirit of both the convention and Manhattan Edit Workshop’s unique training methodology.

Art of the Guillotine | Lightworks review

Editshare’s Lightworks is a very powerful NLE indeed. It feels as familiar as cutting on a flatbed, but as innovative as the latest offerings from the other major players such as Avid, Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premier. Once you understand the workflow, Lightworks is a very fast and powerful NLE. I can see why it has been used on so many Hollywood films. The only thing left is Mac support, which I have been told by Editshare should be available later this year! Lightworks is definitely an outstanding editing tool. So what are you waiting for? Go download the beta, and sharpen your teeth on something new.

Thank you for the kind review 🙂
